Dear Folks:

Mere words cannot adequately express my thanks for the Christmas package. I can truthfully say that in my three years with the U. S. Marine Corps nothing has pleased or touched me as deeply. It is an ideal gift for any service man. Hitler and Company could never a war over a nation whose people are so definitely behind the service men.

Happy Christmas and New Year to you all.

"Semper Fidelis"
